Sanwo-Olu also said his government was rebuilding the roads because “we have too much at stake to be daunted by recent happenings.”

The road was constructed in 1981 as a single carriageway, but underwent an upgrade to a two-lane carriageway in 2006.

The reconstruction will be in two phases, with the first covering 18.75 kilometres from Eleko Junction to Epe-T-Junction. The second phase will cover 26.7kilomtres from Abraham Adesanya Roundabout to Eleko Junction.

The scope of work will encompass an upgrade in both capacity and pavement structure, the provision of reinforced concrete drains, culverts, and median barriers, the relocation of public utilities, provision of reinforced concrete rigid pavement with road markings. 

It will also include installation of weighbridges in each direction of the road, preservation of a rail line corridor within the 50 metre right of way, the provision of transverse and longitudinal service ducts and the provision of a crushed stone base course among others.

The governor said: “Our commitment to the people of Lagos, businesses, and the corporations in our state is that of a more prosperous state with a world-class road network where citizens can travel from one end of the state to the other without unnecessary encumbrances.

“As we place our state on the path of continuous  transformation, we will continue to pursue the right strategies for a greater and wealthier Lagos. Lagos world-class road network

“The reconstructed road will also reduce travel time and loss of man-hours since it will cut through several communities like Eleko, Onose, Alatishe, Aiyeteju, Ajaganabe, Oko orisan, Ilasan, Lekki village  and Epe.”
